There’s something really magical about the woods and the forests, they always makes me feel ecstatic, makes me feel at home.  There are people who will choose a beach over a hill station while planning a trip, and  there are people who will choose a hill station instead. Then there’s me, who will find joy by just having a walk in the woods.

I have visited this place nearly 6 years back, when I was still in college. It was a college trip and while most of my friends were busy shouting and complaining that there are no birds,while actually scaring them away, a friend and I managed to abandon them and actually got to see a lot of exotic birds. I knew that day, that I will come back to this place, with the right person. And today was the day…

While this time I noticed that there were fewer birds than last time (may be because it’s not winter yet), but that was okay, the woods and the fresh air were enough to excite me. Even though the mosquitoes made it hard for us to stand still and click, we somehow managed to get a few pictures that are good enough to post… 😀

  1. Will be helpful travelling CKBS in the month of May 2017 for viewing Birds, Insects, Butterflies etc etc?

    1. I don’t think there will be any birds during the month of May.Also the gate closes by 5, so I’m not sure if the visit will be any enjoyable, hopefully all those trees will be helpful fighting the scorching heat.
